Today I’m sharing my review of Olay Masks Vitamin C + AHA Resurfacing Peel. I love a good skin peel as part of my skincare regimen. As someone who has large pores, combination skin, and at times hyperpigmentation from hormonal acne, peels have become my friends. Let’s see how this one performed on my skin.

Olay Masks Vitamin C + AHA Resurfacing Peel Review
I ordered my product online from Target.com ( free shipping ). Let me just say that reading is fundamental because I honestly overlooked the details of the 4.2oz description on the website. So, I was a little bit shocked at the size of the box when it arrived. I was expecting the products to be a little larger than they actually are.
However, after using this I saw that I could probably squeeze out about 4 to 5 total applications with this. So, I’m satisfied with that.
This peel or face mask has a 2 step process which I found to be quick and easy. Plus, the instructions for application were really simple to follow making this perfect for those new to resurfacing skin peels. This one is really gentle.
The first step in the process requires applying the Olay mask to freshly washed and dried skin. Take care NOT to apply any moisturizer to your skin after washing. You may notice how dry or damaged your natural skin looks without moisture but a good resurfacing peel should take care of those issues.
*Tip: This peel may damage your manicure. It caused my nail polish to turn dull, soft, and peel up from the edges. So if you’d like to preserve your mani, use gloves.
Step 1 – Vitamin C Resurfacing Mask – This has a very pleasant smell to it. It’s kind of citrusy and the texture is similar to thick honey with super fine resurfacing particles (baking soda and silica silylate). It also has vitamins B3, C, and E.
The directions say to use a quarter-sized amount but I used more because I’m a rebel lol. You have to make sure to avoid your eye area and massage it in for 1 minute. I made sure to apply some under my chin as well because things weren’t looking too good under there.
Step 2 – AHA Peel Activator – You can be generous with the AHA activator. When you apply this over the mask it produces foam and you’ll feel a slight warming of your skin. But nothing uncomfortable at all. Just keep massaging for another minute and then rinse.
*Tip: Be sure to rinse well. Because the resurfacing particles are so fine, they can linger even if you feel you’ve done a good job of rinsing. So pay attention to hairlines and your neck area.
My Results and Review
Overall, I really like the Olay Masks Vitamin C + AHA Resurfacing Peel. To me, the products have a luxurious spa-quality feel to them and the price was reasonable compared to the number of resurfacing treatments you can get out of this set.
I am very pleased with how well they performed on my skin. I instantly felt the difference as soon as I began rinsing my face. This left me with much smoother skin. It felt like it had been buffed!
Plus, it was super supple. No drying out at all.
I’m very used to using light chemical peels on my skin and I can tell you that this peel is EXTRA gentle. I didn’t feel any irritation and afterward, there were no visible scratches, scars, or redness.
The Olay Masks Vitamin C + AHA Resurfacing Peel retails for around $19.99. But, you can get it for less on Amazon here: https://naturallystellar.com/OlayVitCPeel
